A Tale of Two Cities


Published November 15, 2006


LibriVox recording of A Tale of Two Cities, by Charles Dickens.

A Tale of Two Cities (1859) is a historical novel by Charles Dickens; it is moreover a moral novel strongly concerned with themes of guilt, shame, redemption and patriotism.

The plot centers on the years leading up to French Revolution and culminates in the Jacobin Reign of Terror. It tells the story of two men, Charles Darnay and Sydney Carton, who look very alike but are entirely different in character. (Summary from wikipedia)

Subject: the use of multipule readers
I feel that when there are many readers of a book it disrupts the flow. You become attached to an excellent reader as to the characters of the book. When they are swapped out it is bothersome to become used to the new reader and how they deliver the story once you become used to the next it swapes again and the process has to be redone. Another gripe is having them also introduce the chapter book title author and reader and where they are from, completely destroys the flow.

Subject: Great Book!
This is a great book and well read by the readers, but the use of multiple readers within the same book is not to my taste.

Subject: Well done reading of Dickens
This Dickens classic is read by a wide variety of talented Librivox volunteers. Overall, the reading is very well done and they bring the book to life. When I read to myself, I tend to read quickly and skip. But being read to is a whole other experience - the depth of description and character development that Dickens builds into his novels shines through. Well worth the 15 hour commitment to hear the entire book.
